Hope Was Here
Written By: Joan Bauer
I chose the diner because Hope is always working at the diner with her Aunt Addie. Also, I chose the diner because Hope has always had a dream for being a waitress. Hope's real mom was a waitress. Whenever Hope sees her real mom they always share waitress tips.
I chose politics because throughout the story while G.T is fighting for his health he is trying to be mayor of Wisconsin. Later in the story Hope helps G.T. through his sickness and trying to be mayor. In the end of the story, G.T.'s opponent cheats so everyone thinks he won the election but really G.T. did.
I chose Leukemia/Sickness in my book because in my G.T. gets sick horribly sick but stills runs for mayor. Hope helps him get through Leukemia. Everyone tries to make sure G.T. is ok throughout the story. Later in the book he gets in remission which means that he is all better. But, in the end something went wrong and G.T. died.
I chose food because Hope is always serving the food with Braverman. She is always serving sandwiches that she made. She is always serving her Aunt Addie's famous food, Aunt Addie is always a big person in the book who cares about food.
Hope (Having hope)
I chose the word hope because the main character in the story's name is Hope, but there are other reasons. Also, because Hope's real name was Tulip, but when she was thirteen she was allowed to change her name. She thought long and hard about it and chose the name Hope. I also chose this object/adjective because ever single character always was hoping for something, either hoping for G.T. not to die, or for him to win the election. But most of all i chose Hope because the main charachter always had hope on her side.
